The Defeated of the Summer

As some may remember, I worked at a summer camp this year.  My job was to run the indoor areas like the game room and the arcade.  Throughout the summer, I had some time to play a few video games myself.  This was usually in the morning when I was running the controllers and tablets through the chargers.  I beat a few including two that I hadn’t beaten before.  All of these were on the Nintendo Mini and Super Nintendo Mini, so they’re classic games.  I missed out on some because the campers liked them too and took over my games.  That’s fair since it’s all for them.  Anyway, here are the endings of the games I beat.  I did videos because I love the finale music of many of them, especially the Super NES games.

The next one is a game my best friend since 1st grade and I tried hard to beat.  Never figured it out and I recently learned that we had no idea what we were doing.  Either his game never came with the manual or he never read it, but I learned there was a leveling system and a healing spell in the game.  We really could have used that healing spell way back when.  The ending starts around 30 seconds.

This was the surprise victory.  I’ll admit that I didn’t do the second play through because I ran out of time and I didn’t want to do it all again.  I made it close to the end of the second run though, but I hated the special weapon you get.  Now, Super Ghouls & Ghosts is an infamously hard game.  Only reason I succeeded was because the Super NES Mini has a function where you can save exactly where you are.  I would restart whenever I got hit and lost all of my power ups.  I’m not ashamed to admit this considering when I was younger, my friend and I would never make it beyond the first stage.  Now, here we are:

(Wow.  They really did put the Princess’s measurements in there.  That’s pretty messed up.)

  1. Enjoyed the tour through the various endings, Charles. Thanks.


  2. We keep getting older, but the video games are eternal (although blocky).
